  • The Breakfast Club

    The Breakfast Club

    ★★★½

    I honestly enjoyed this a bit more than I thought I would. For a stereotypical 80’s high school, there were parts that were actually quite enjoyable. Despite this, there’s definitely a few instances of homophobia, sexual harassment (that one scene in particular), and the characters feel quite shallow during certain segments. I also lowkey relate to Brian (the brain). In terms of high school films, I’d put this above Fast Times, but below Dazed and Confused. 

    7/10

    ★★★★

    I really think I'm gonna have to watch this one again at some point. I'm a little bit disappointed, but at the same time, impressed by it. The first 2 hours (days) establish Jeanne's routine, but then you get to see her routine unravel in third one. The thing is, you REALLY have to pay attention to catch everything, which for some people can be very difficult, especially when the entire film is seemingly mundane housework. The ending however is…

  • Onibaba

    ★★★★

    Hachi is literally me.


    Wow, that was kinda insane. Not as scary as some people make it out to be, but this still had a good story. Love the theme of human lust throughout it (don't screenshot). A lot of the shots in this film are absolutely gorgeous, especially several of the tall grass shots and the entire rain sequence. The ending is also many sorts of fucked, and I kinda like the ambiguity of it as well. Makes you think whether or not the old woman truly got what she deserved. A great time for sure.

    8/10

  • 12 oz. Mouse

    12 oz. Mouse

    ★★★★★

    I swear I’m not joking, but this is legit one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Once you get past the crude animation, there’s a deep and interesting story underneath it. 

    10/10

  • South Park: Post COVID: The Return of COVID

    South Park: Post COVID: The Return of COVID

    ★★★★

    They're really still going with the tegridy jokes....

    A nice follow up to the first part. A bit drawn out at times, but it still has a few nice moments, but goddamn that ending is kinda devastating. Also, fuck NFTs.

    8/10

  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid

    ★★½

    This aint it man. Like it’s fine I guess, but I’m not a big fan of the animation, and some of the voices aren’t very fitting. Also, goddamn Manny is so much more annoying in this one. 

    5/10

  • Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

    Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One

    I think I'm gonna need to rewatch this one before I can give it a rating. Despite it being only an hour and 15 minutes, there's so much to unpack with this one that I absolutely have to rewatch it again at some point. Very meta.

  • The French Dispatch

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    Great film. Loved the first 2 stories, the 3rd one was fine, great cinematography as always from Wes, and of course that absolutely charming style. Finally have seen every Wes film now.

    8/10

  • South Park: Post COVID

    South Park: Post COVID

    ★★★★

    Fuck Uncle Kyle!

  • 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

    4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

    ★★★★

    Intense and depressing look into just how risky and dangerous getting an abortion in communist Romania (and potentially even in other areas today) was. The whole scene with Mr. Bebe is perfect in showing how men take control of womens bodies, which should not be the case. All the sacrifices Otilia makes for Gabita throughout the film are amazing. A really great film that should definitely make you realize that women should have the right to do whatever they want with themselves.

    8/10, but could go up to a 9

  • The Royal Tenenbaums

    The Royal Tenenbaums

    ★★★★½

    Once again, Wes absolutely delivers with this fantastic film. Great story backed by amazing characters (especially Richie Tenenbaum), settings, lighting, and of course that famous Wes style. I can’t wait to get back to this one.

    9/10
